Long-term migration from PET

Scientists show that for PET bottles accelerated migration tests overestimate real long-term migration; suggest use of migrant- and polymer-specific diffusion parameters instead of default values

Modeling chemical exposure via food

Scientists discuss models available for estimating human exposure to chemicals through food; chemical inputs from processing, packaging, storage, and transportation are underreported

Modeling of migration from LDPE

Scientists determine key parameters for modeling migration of benzophenone and several other contaminants from low density polyethylene into food simulants and foodstuffs; propose revision of worst-case scenario values

Decontamination of recycled polyolefins

Scientists review decontamination of recycled polyolefins, compare it to PET; existing processes need re-examination using high molecular weight surrogate contaminants
